Since the beginning of China’s opening up in the 1980’s, China’s travel industry has transformed into one of the world’s most-watched inbound and outbound tourism markets. China is already the world’s largest outbound travel market, and is expected to grow further. Following substantial increases in disposable income, the number of outbound trips from China is estimated to reach 178.4 million per year by 2022, with related expenditure expected to reach nearly 200 billion USD. Chinese travelers are also ranked among the top spenders on a per-trip basis.
